Image of Azala

Azala is a dance and performing arts centre in the Basque Country in northern Spain. Located in a rural area, the centre is a space for artistic residencies and a meeting place for artists. It aims to generate working conditions conducive to the processes of creation and investigation for its resident artists, while creating a space and period of time which allows for the freedom to produce, learn, experiment, reflect, and engage in critical exchange.

Image of Campo Adentro

Campo Adentro is a project exploring territories, geopolitics, culture and identity in the context of the relations between urban and rural environments as they exist in Spain today. The aim of Campo Adentro's residency programme is to allow for creative investment in rural issues, encouraging artists to reconsider rural environments, and for rural communities to provide resources for self expression and cultural generation. The project provides artists, farmers, intellectuals, rural development agents, policy makers, curators and art critics, among others, with an open platform for presenting their research and practice.

Curators’ Network is an online platform where emerging European cultural agents can connect and collaborate. The network was created to help art professionals from across Europe share their knowledge, while encouraging international collaboration between European organisations and curators and promoting new artists in European circles.

Image of Matadero Madrid

Matadero Madrid is a living, changing space catering to creative processes, participatory artistic training and dialogue between artistic disciplines. It was created to contribute to reflections on our contemporary socio-cultural environment, as well as to support processes for constructing the culture of today and tomorrow. Set in one of the most important early-20th century industrial architecture sites in the capital, Matadero Madrid aims to become the city’s biggest centre for contemporary creation and a leading international space dedicated to present-day culture. It is an initiative by Madrid Council’s Department of the Arts, in collaboration with other public and private entities. Read more about Matadero Madrid here.
